Review: Stripped (The Ferro Family) by H. M. Ward

Stripped by HM Ward

Stripped (The FERRO Family) by H. M. Ward



By New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling New Adult author H.M. Ward.

The V Card. Virgin. Most of us want to punch that sucker ASAP, and hide the fact until then, but not Cassie Hale. Three years ago she frickin' covered hers in glitter and laminated the thing, proudly telling me that she's waiting for the perfect guy.

So when I see her half naked, tangled together, rolling around on the floor with another stripper, I'm kind of shocked. Okay, that's an understatement. I'm enthralled. I have to know what cracked her picture perfect world and landed her here, and I hope it's something horrible-an event that broke her the way she broke me. Because, that's who Cassie Hale is--the woman who stole my heart and crushed it in her hand.

Genre: New Adult Romance

4 out of 5 stars

Great book, fast read and I enjoyed every second! There was just the right amount of intrigue to keep you on the edge of your seat and I loved the fact that it was written from two POV’s.

I love how the book started off in the present but then did a flashback. I enjoyed getting to know Jonathon when he was younger and watching him change his arrogant ways a bit – he was just as sexy as ever! He was so sweet and caring with Cassie. Cassie was extremely guarded but it was wonderful watching her barriers start to come down as their friendship grew. I loved Jonathan, he's was so much more than what people saw or gave him credit for and I'm glad Cassie truly saw him. The flashback ended rather abruptly for me and I was slightly confused. Thankfully a lot of those questions got answered in the second half of the book.

I enjoyed the present day part of the story, there was a lot of intensity and animosity! We learned a lot about Cassie and I felt so bad for what had become of her life. I do wish there would have been more Jonathon. He was so bitter and sweet all wrapped into one... I found myself wanting more. What can I say, he’s a Ferro and I can never get enough!

I loved all the different characters and how they were are interlaced from the other books. I totally enjoyed Sean and Peter and getting to see more interaction between the brothers. Some other characters from H. M. Ward’s books also make appearances and I think everything is tied together well.

I really liked the ending and thought this was a wonderful love story. I was left with a lot of unanswered questions but there will be a Stripped 2 so I’m confident they’ll be answered. I felt there was some closure at the end of this book but there’s still a cliffhanger which creates the foundation for the next book.

Excellent story, I was hooked!
